Happy New Year Everyone!
I started my year with a bang by purchasing a domain for my new product idea (of course I’ll build it using Anvil) this year!
Woohoo and I haven’t validated the idea!
So please don’t try this at home.
The hope / goal of my idea is for families to have happy homes.
Basically the product is a web app for family management.
There are lots of factors to consider but for v1, I’ll just focus on the financial module.
That’s all I have for today so
follow my journey!
First off, I need to learn Anvil.
And thankfully there’s a Free Anvil course by
the anvil docs are amazingly detailed and will help. They have developed the platform a lot since this course was recorded. A few hours of playing and you’ll have the hang of it!
I am not an anvil expert but this forum have helped me out a lot. If/when you start scratching your head, do not hesitate to ask in this forum
Its quite awesome
More recent third-party Tutorial:
I wrote a new tutorial for Anvil, intended for absolute beginners. It’s a total of 150 pages, with more than 200 screenshots and 22 app examples. It covers the basics of coding in Python, in context, so users who’ve never written a line of code before can use Anvil to take their first steps (and get quite a way on their journey). I put the tutorial, maybe better described as a mini-course, up for free at:
I hope it’s useful for new users. Please let me kn…

I’m back on working with my Anvil App and there’s one thing that I cannot easily find - how to show a Popup or Dialog Box? For example, like an Add form instead of showing it on the main area. Thanks in advance!
Here’s a great article about the built in popups!
Regarding custom popup you could try out this project.
I have not fully understand of how to pass arguments to the custom form but this seems to work:
#when the form is called
within the custom form (PopupForm) you will receive your arguments in
def __init__(self, **properties):
# Set Form properties and Data Bindings.
@tobias.carlbom provided the correct answer.
Here is an alternative:
Input_box() and alert2()

Noted on this
@stefano.menci . Thanks! For any questions, will make another post. I just plan to use this thread to share my progress.
Was able to customize the design of my left navigation.
Used component model to show the different modules in the content area.
Drafted the form in the Envelopes.
Update the color scheme of the input table and data grid
Will try to put the form in a popup
Make the CRUD for Envelopes
